sign or a romney sign, you made your voice heard and you made a difference. >>> the tally. president obama 50%. 58 millian votes. mitt romney, 48%. 56 million votes. so much for the popular vote. the electoral vote. 270 needed to win. president obama 303, governor romney 206. still unassigned, 29, florida is conducting a recount. >>> was this election a mandate, a landslide, a rout, a speaker, a marginal win, what was it? >> it is a significant victory by the president of the united states by more than 2 million votes, john. i don't believe it is a mandate. >> why isn't a mandate if it is such a big win? >> a mandate for what? a mandate to work together, certainly the entire country wants that. but the real fire bell in the night on this election is for the republican party. there are 100 million folks in this country who are black, brown, asian, hispanic, middle eastern, they voted between 70 and 90% democratic and the white vote only went by 18 points to mitt romney. john of the seven largest states in the country, illinois, new york, pennsylvania, california have gone democratic i
romney was echoing that cry from the anti-obama crowd, pledging to take our country back. but that is deep in the past. no matter how hard they want it, america's fewer you to -- future just won't look like the early 1950's. hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, the washington post bob woodward. "the washington post" kathleen parker, "the new york times" d helen cooper. first up. barack obama's place in american presidential history was upgrated tuesday with his convincing sweeping re-election by an entirely new american elect rat. -- electorate. >> we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward. chris: bob, here we are five days later. i'm thinking, i still can't absorb the months and months and months we worried about which way this election mibet go and then to see it go in one simple clear direction. obama's direction. >> and it's a
on tuesday, handing him a narrower, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it. when you combine that with the president's brutally efficient, we now know turnout operation in core states like ohio, virginia and florida, popular vote pretty close in the end. in the end he got out the partisans in much the same numbers in 2008 and that's what won it for him. >> paul: so, kim, you're saying that's about 100 million dollars or more that the obama campaign poured on mitt romney on bain capital on his tax returns on the fact that he's a pluto kratt, and making h
93% of african-americans, a 71% of hispanics, more women than romney. he won 52% of voters under 34. half the independent voters. 54% of those who make over $100,000 a year. first we will hear from the president. >> i believe we can lead this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions. >> we will get to the campaign and mitt romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person -- john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something together
have a president now who's ready to stand his ground, for jobs, for growth, but not the bush/romney way. no more trickle down now that the people of this country have sent their message from the top up. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on taxes. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in this 21st century. rock solid he is. backed again by a majority of the american people. indeed, re-elected as the only second democrat since the civil war with two majority elections. the other, of course, is fdr. with an updated mandate he is back. some ready to deal, others hiding in their bunkers, waiting for something, anything to save them from the terrifying sight of the 21st century. i'm joined by dee dee myers, former press secretary and the author of the e book "47%." the president stressed he's willing to compromise to avoid the consequence of going over that so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year. however, he's sticking to his guns that the wealthiest need to be asked to pay a bit more. let's watch. >> i want
that undermining romney's business credentials. at that the strategy was smart at the time but the first debate it was almost too easy for him to look reasonable and he just shed that hold caricature. for a few weeks there, it really did it tumbled the race. that was the one real opening he had. >> i already talked about campaign 101 and it was never clear -- why romney and not obama? in terms of meeting to talk to people looking back to 2004 and president bush talking to hispanics, when our party talks to hispanics, it works. martinez, rubio, lots of examples. one person i have to say i have a bias towards is bobby jindal. he can articulate to conservatives and he has put them in practice, by partisanship, getting a thing is done. i do think there's a great future and a lot of real leaders in the republican party who can articulate conservative policies. >> we have a terrific second panel coming up in a few minutes. i do see some of our speakers here, but i want to ask if there were any standouts for you in terms of personalities or players in this race. i was very struck that cnn really found
from mitt romney to his supporters. as sources offer us a rare and telling portrait of the most painful week of romney's political career. by week's end, mitt romney and his wife ann driving themselves to headquarters. gone with the secret service detail. instead of the long lines of supporters, now a line of dozens of staffers outside of romney's office door. some waiting to shake his hand, others looking for a quiet moment with the governor. the former presidential candidate eating pizza out of the box in his office. mrs. romney in jeans and a sweater. just hours aer the loss last week, romney calling a staff meeting. emotions raw, romney and his wife arriving the deafening applause and chants of "mitt, mitt." romney was clearly moved. mrs. romney crying. sources telling me campaign manager matt rhoades saying, "we would rather lose with you than win with anyone else." in the days after defeat, a source close to mrs. romney said she described the moment she walked on that stage as surreal. saying mrs. romney wondered to herself, are we really conceding? it was mrs. romney that remains
and figure out why things happened the way they did but it is time to put mitt romney in the rearview mirror and proceed. there is a long bench on the republican side, many others of home -- who will be there to be the candidate. we need a clear view of where we're going. in 2014 there is as bright a view of the senate takeover by republicans as any time in the last 30 or 40 years. the number of republican scifres up for election as opposed to the democrats after two more years of a, -- obama, if republicans can take back the senate, they will make the last two years of the obama administration immeasurable time for the president. those are few of the things we look forward -- those are a few of the things. we look forward to taking your questions. >> thank you. >> this is one of the examples -- can you give examples of how mitt romney could have complained and the regret -- [inaudible] i do not think there's any question he took all the right stance. that is not the argument he took all the right positions and we were all happy to spread those commitments around. the problem was not communi
to a total of 322. mitt romney got 206. 270 needed to win the white house. >>> a huge earthquake has struck myanmar just nine days before president obama is due to visit. the 6.6 magnitude quake was centered about 226 miles north of the capital. if he goes ahead with his visit, mr. obama would be the first sitting president to visit myanmar. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. a shocking admission, shaking the entire intelligence community. it may end a brilliant career. but did it put the country at risk? some say the gop needs some new faces or face extinction. on the other side, minorities help reelect president obama. has he done right by them? we've got a political intervention for both sides. >>> plus, is bond too old? >>> and it's some of the hottest lingerie in the world. but how is this sexy? thanks again for joining us. mitt romney lost the election but he may have made history. here's why. his loss could go down as the last presidential campaign to bank on the white vote for a win. in a moment, evidence of why that is a
one win. he has spent maybe $170 million against barack obama and for mitt romney. he had a horrible record. on election night he tried to recreate florida 2000 on fox news by insisting that the network fox was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous conflict of interest. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator and is writing a column for "the wall street journal." there are so many conflicts there is a pleasure mind. host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: which, by the way, i am on that too. he has all kinds of things. his losing record is what points out that his time in american politics has come and gone. host: what is next for the political parties and the
after this. i was saying to peoeople on the flightack from boston -- i was at romney headquarters -- it wawas too close.e. yes, it was and not look cor -- electctro clege landslide but there were a lot o of republicans saying that if o only we had done more of this, more of that. >> sometimes more getsou less. voters have very -- there was a significant contract offer to the amerirican electote, and they did choose. me peoeople mimight missing the fact thavoters did make a very fufundamental choice. what we're seeing is a lot of posturing could i t think we will get a deal. i think ththat wall street will insist upon a deal. we will get to deal when we get a few people into a room d posturing recedes. >> marion, you heard president obama say it before, electctions have consequences. i heard republicanss say yes they have consequences, i was nt back. you see the republicans saying we have to shift, or do you see more republicans saying that we needed to make a stronger course towardrds our direction? >> more willay that we need to make a stronger course toward a bipartisan comprom
%. now 27% for mitt romney. to be steadily losing votes in an expanding demographic is a recipe for failure. florida senator marco rubio, the son of cuban immigrants and a republican suggests the problem is both substantive. >> it's hard to make an argument to people that think that you want to deport their grandmother. >> decisive in 2012. 53% of the votes this year were cast by women who favored president obama by ten points. >> my wife is a democrat, and she was so close to voting for mitt romney, but then, you know, murdock and akin opened their mouths, and we sent them running back to the democratic party because they think we're nut where i. >> actually, married women tended favor mitt romney, but single women, a growing part of the population, went 3-1 for the president. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. >> republicans have two years until the midterm to try to shed a little of the old off the grand old party and reach out to a quickly changing american demographic. they do not lack for suggestions. >> my ideal republican party woul
. the president n 93% o african-americans, a 71% of thannics, more women romney. 73% of asian-americans. 60% of voters 18 to 29. he won 52% of voters under 34. 4234. half the independent voters.s. overf those who me $100,000 a year. first we will ar from the president. thi i believe we e can le arere together because we politicssided as our suggest. we are not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions. >> we will get to the campaign d mittomney in a minute, but john listen to what boehner said after the election. your. president, this is ment. we are ready to be led. not as democra or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane mostr he ishe personbable, responsible dianen boehner told mostr he is the personble, responsible presidentn and the knows that. and he knows that he and john can work together. -- john boehner can work tother. end of the year. will we ach a compromise before then, charles? a i do not thinink it will be comprehensive compromi
of what mitt romney needed to do was to start off with the 22 states that mccain won with 180 electoral votes. then you say, ok. he is going to win indiana. that gets it to 191. probably the next easiest they will be north carolina. what will he have to do after that to get up to 270? we still have two states out, florida and virginia, which were going to be my next two states he would need to win. they are still undecided at this point. with obama slightly ahead in both of them. basically it looks like it stops. he would have needed to do florida and virginia and then he would need to get into colorado, iowa, new hampshire. even winning all of that he would be three short of 270. it was pretty clear going into election day that a whole lot had to happen right for romney to get over to 70. it did not happen. it seemed to peter out either after north carolina in that sequence or maybe even florida or virginia wants all the votes are counted, maybe one or theoretically both of them fall to him, but probably not. that is where it was. there was one. back around -- looking at the sequencing
should be done not just at fox but cnn and msnbc. >> and a great cheer went up at the romney victory parties which is where i was when he said this. so it also kind of drew out the hope of that crowd who were watching this hoping for any sign that maybe this isn't over yet. >> keeping hope alive at a time when if you listened to fox and the other networks, cnn, msnbc, also making objection that romney had won ohio although it was very tight. karl rove is a smart guy. he lep he helped elect bush twice. >> remember, he had -- on 2000 and 2004, both election nights when he was fighting with the networks over their projections and he happened to be right both times. i think's a little bit of history there where he says, wait a second. ice interesting to have a guy like that on there. asking karl rove whether gop or romney is going to win is like digging up knute rockne and asking whether irish would be enou number one. >> a lot of people were wrong, it turns out. most of the mainstream media and pollsters were right about president obama and it makes me think about this. was this moment
made. that was you should recruit romney and mccain. negotiate a deal with the chamber of commerce? if i were them, i would get it out of the way. and then you can set of economic issue and you have a much greater challenge. the president knows how he will raise income and create jobs. that's the first thing to deliver on. >> let's not underestimate the challenge the president faces. the election yesterday was 50- 48. the president managed to get less than 40% support from the largest group. he leads a very divided country and he helped make the divide by the way he ran the campaign. it is incumbent on this president to reach out, to show ogling is to expand his coalition, to be flexible with some of his policy options, and only he can do. . no one else other than this president can get beyond this incredible divisiveness. >> as of right now, his margin of victory is the smallest ever for it successfully reelected president as a share of the popular rovote. >> that won't remain. >> but he is the first president since andrew jackson to be reelected with a smaller share of the popula
of the republican party with the former chair. bill press will be joining us in 15 or 20 minutes. "romney is president." and what is next for the republicans? another piece from "the weekly standard." back to your calls. larry is on the democrats' line from ohio. caller: good morning. i think the grover norquist rule should be abandoned. we are americans. we all need to work together. republicans, democrats, and independents, this is our country. it was founded in a manner that we all live and work together. the pledge that they took on was a negative. it was not what we as the people of the united states voted for these people to do. it was something they adopted to do. it took the pledge to make president obama a1-term president. that is not something that we did. we just sent a message that was not what we wanted. this country needs to turn it around and work together. president obama and john boehner need to work out a deal. the house of representatives needs to work with a. we need to quit fighting wars on a credit card. lyndon baines johnson installed a surcharge tax to pay for the
million short of his 2008 tally. but, he's holding about 3 million advantage over mitt romney. we'll discuss how obama did and what's next for the gop and the governing challenges ahead? >>> but first, that friday afternoon bombshell. david petraeus resigns at the cia after the fbi uncovers his extramarital affair. pierre thomas is here with the latest. first came upon this several months ago. >> yes, it came to light after a woman in tampa tied to military got a peculiar, harassing e-mail. the woman was so concerned, she contacted the fbi, who, then, according to our sources, traced it back to paula broadwell, who wrote a book about petraeus. as the fbi continued to investigate, they discovered e-mails pointing to a romantic, sexual relationship between the two. early concerns about the e-mails being hacked. but the investigation never turned up evidence of national security being compromised. but what did find was lots of human drama. >> what more do they have to investigate now and why wasn't the white house told until this week? >> the fbi investigation is largely done and the
of the with the defense contractor in favor of mitt romney that is good for your business but bad for the economy in general to tax some people. romney had a good line you don't just pickwinners and losers but you pick the losers. john: they could the random selection people look at politician as the person to solve every problem? president obama was the magic president. these people were waiting three hours. he is magic. >> they've really feel he has the intrinsic quality now they he has been reelected to change people's lives like he has only been warming up. for what? it is terrifying. john: people felt this way about romney. >> but obama is a classic example of the colt of the presidency the idea that any politician can fix all the problems is not start with the obama but is the attitude we should get rid of racism. he should stop the rise of the oceans and get everybody house. i saw a teenager said he should give everybody a house. kids say that is understandable. but adults are supposed to understand there are incentives, a trade offs and a cost. there are unintended consequences government

is over, and particularly that romney has not been elected, the republicans are going to continue their investigation into the benghazi tragedy. with gusto and they're not going to let up, no matter what. it's a terrible story for the administration. whether or not we learn that something happened in the petraeus affair and he was compromised, and he did share classified information with ms. broadwell and shy disseminated it to other people or something. that would be different. it would probably have nothing to do with benghazi, it's just a different track. i don't know that majority leader cantor not saying out in public before the election really matters. think these are apples and orjs, but politically the benghazi thing is a real sore spot for the administration. when they have their own investigation like mr. pickerings concluded and they can no longer cease from asking questions, it's going to be a very tough time for them. >> republican senator lindsay graham on "face the nation" this morning, molly ball, take a listen and see what he said on the other side. >> we have a n
